Please click here for our most recent letter to parents and carers dated 25th March 2020.
We all have our part to play in helping to stop the spread of Coronavirus. This means we must stay at home to protect the NHS and help save lives.
Community Classrooms for vulnerable students and key workers’ children
Parents should keep children at home wherever possible and thanks to everyone across our community who has followed that advice. The fewer children making the journey to school and the fewer children in our Community Classrooms, the lower the risk of the virus spreading.
The purpose of our Community Classroom is to provide care for the children of key workers and children who are vulnerable. Only children in these categories can attend. Information on the list of key workers is here.
Any parents who meet the criteria and who want their children to attend the Community Classroom must let us know, giving details, otherwise we cannot guarantee places.
We will ask parents on a weekly basis to re-confirm if they want to continue using the Community Classroom in school.
We are working to maintain as much stability for the students’ education as possible. Whilst it is not possible to fully replicate the educational experience at home, we are putting in place plans to make sure students can still access work and teachers are able to support their learning. Learning resources for each year group have been posted on our website https://charteracademy.org.uk/home-learning-1 and you and your children can email our staff for support. Staff email addresses can be found https://charteracademy.org.uk/staff
We will update this page and keep in touch with parents and students via our website, texts and letters.
Please continue to follow health guidance.
Thank you to everyone for your understanding during these challenging times and a heartfelt thanks to our NHS and key workers who are working so hard to look after us all.
If you need to contact the school, please phone 02392824204 and leave a voicemail. Voicemails are being forwarded to the relevant member of staff. Alternatively you can email email@example.com.
STAY HOME, PROTECT THE NHS, SAVE LIVES
This is an unsettling and disruptive time for everyone and we will work together as a school and local community to face the challenging times ahead. Thank you for your support and understanding during these exceptional circumstances. If we can do anything more to help your family, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
“In the most effective schools, the headteacher and governors establish a clear vision, rooted in an unwavering commitment to ensure the success of every pupil. Equality of opportunity is at the heart of this vision, with an insistence that all pupils will do well.” - Sir Michael Wilshaw
We welcome our general duty under the Equality Act 2010 to have due regard to the need to eliminate discrimination; to advance equality of opportunity; and to foster good relations.
We also welcome our specific duties to publish information about our school population; to explain how we have due regard for equality; and to publish equality objectives which show how we plan to tackle particular inequalities or disadvantages.
Meeting our duties to promote community cohesion, and the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils, also supports how we meet the needs of different groups of pupils and how we foster good relations.
Please find details of our equality statement for 2016-2019. This statement was ratified by the LGB in December 2015.
